Exquisite - Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind - Forever Blooming Florals, Artisan Lampwork Focal Pendant Necklace - Wearable Art !
This forever blooming Italian Moretti Glass, Lampwork Focal Bead is Handcrafted and properly kiln annealed, by a U.S. Glass Lampwork Artisan (in the state of Illinois).
Gorgeous Dimensional Raised Florals (in Blue, and dimensional foliage in greens and deep rich earthy rusty browns) seemingly float on their Raku base … please note that the bead is adorned - Front, Sides and Back - with such precision - that its difficult to discern the front from the back - as the design work is mirrored and almost identical, on both sides of the bead !!! This is exquisite lampwork artistry .... and both sides of the bead are represented in the pics ..
The Focal Bead (alone) measures just shy of 2 Inches in Height (1 7/8 Inches in height) x 1 Inch in width x 1/2 Inch in thickness ...
Hand wire wrapped on hardened, heavy gauge sterling silver, with Swarovski Crystal accents (in blue zircon), this pendant dangles gracefully from a Bali Sterling Silver Bail, and measures a total overall length of just over 2 3/4 Inches Inches. Strung on a Swedish Satin Cord (measuring 28 Inches in length, allowing you to simply slip over your head and go). This Focal can (also) easily be added to your favorite chain … and/or you can continue to wear on it's satin cord … your preference :-)
(small white pinpoint spots / streaks on the bead are only photographed reflection spots, and do not actually appear on the floral bead).
If you are new to Glass Lampwork Art, each bead is Individually hand crafted by heating solid glass rods to a molten state - the beads are created by wrapping and layering the molten glass around a steel rod (which becomes the bead hole). Depending on the skill of the Glass Lampwork Artisan, the end result can be phenomenal ! Lampworking involves carefully manipulating hot molten glass ... and no paint or painting is involved !
